On August 25-27, 2010, local officials and experts from China met with counterparts from Japan to share experience on implementing energy efficiency law and policies. Discussions with the city government and site visits in Kawasaki provided participants the opportunity to understand how energy efficiency is being addressed at the local level in Japan. Based on this dialogue, the partners will develop a training program for local agencies in China. Feedback on the training manual will be gathered in a consultation workshop and pilot training in October.
This activity is part of the “twinning” partnership between the Japanese Ministry of Environment and the Chinese Society of Environmental Scientists (CSES) and Tsinghua University, facilitated by AECEN.
